Photometrics Prime sCMOS Camera

Prime sCMOS Camera Description

Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to incorporate a powerful FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine (ESP). ESP enables advanced real-time processing features: PrimeEnhance™ quantitatively increases the Peak Signal to Noise Ratio by 3X-5X, increasing the clarity and quality of images. PrimeLocate™ dynamically evaluates acquired images and reduces the surplus of data generated during high speed super-resolution imaging. Designed using sCMOS sensor technology, Prime becomes an extremely versatile imaging solution for life science imaging. It is a high resolution camera with great sensitivity, extremely low noise, high frame rates and an impressive dynamic range. The large field of view is ideal for microscopy, maximizing usefulness of the imaging area
